David Lanoue’s new book completes his quartet of “haiku novels” in which characters in Old Japan appear alongside their counterparts in contemporary New Orleans—including the author himself. People from both eras who have popped in and out of the wildly unpredictable plots of Haiku Guy, Laughing Buddha and Haiku Wars—including the poets Buck-Teeth, Kuro, Mido and Shiro; the former samurai, former kabuki actor Kojiki; the daimyo-turned-holy man Kaga; and the heart-crushing Lady Plum—all make their final appearances in these pages of a story about an incredible frog who just might be a reincarnated haiku master. Shortlisted for the 2012 Touchstone Distinguished Books Awards by The Haiku Foundation.
